In this module, we focus on the task of denoising an image. Techniques from the field of calculus of variations have recently been used to denoise images. Although the calculus of variations is not widely included in undergraduate courses, our materials are designed to let students explore and discover essential bits of the theory throughout an introductory real analysis course.
We have developed two versions of this module: Version A (click here for a description) is designed to be included in a single-semester real analysis course, and Version B (click here for a description) is designed to be included in a two-semester real analysis sequence. Please contact us if you are interested in trying either of these sequences out in your course!
